I view it differently , I did not grow up in the Fear generation . My take is simply this : look at it as Sh*t Happens , NO MORE THAN THAT . The reasoning is this , if you FEAR your enemy , you are already defeated , on the other hand , if you get ANGRY with your enemy , and hate him , you have and will win . For the US , WW2 is the best example , when Pearl Harbor was attacked , we didnt get scared , we got ANGRY !!!!! we then hated the enemy , and used that energy to destroy him . When 9/11 happened , we got scared , and we have been loosing ever sense . Under no circumstances do you allow the enemy to undermine your liberty and freedoms in the guise of ” protection ” from your government , your enemy wins every time you do . So long story short , you get hit , dust yourself off and keep going like nothing happened . Dont give them the power , and retaliate when the opportunity presents itself , WITHOUT MERCY .
